Primrose is the sweet, fat donkey who loves to be brushed and petted, and loves to get treats. She is never agressive, at least toward people, and loves to get very near and lean her body against yours. She isnt pregnant, she just has a fat belly. I think she would love to have a donkey partner to keep her company. She tolerates the dog and the goats, but they just arent the same as another equine. Maybe soon she will find a mate, or at least a best friend.
Alita, our first goat. She is a Miniature- Nubian, and nearly 3 years old. She has the sweetness and voice of a Nubian, and the assertiveness of a Nigerian. She hasn't had a kid yet, but hopefully this will be her year. She is definitely the leader of the goat pack, and a greedy eater.
Julia - the Dorper sheep. She is responsible for getting us interested in raising sheep. She is curious, smart and very strong! So far, she seems to be one of the healthiest of the herd. She will jump and bounce around the field when she's
happy, and jump to get away when she's mad. She doesn't like to be confined to be sheared or get a shot. So far, she is the only Dorper, but we have high hopes for her.
Scout - our 6 month old Great Pyrenees guard dog. Already, he takes is job seriously, watching patiently over his flock. He lives comfortably with the sheep, goats, chickens and the donkey. Sometimes he even sleeps in the chicken coop. Once in a while, he likes to sneak an egg when no one is looking.
My name is Christy Franklin.
